Our Publication Scheme
As part of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 we are required to have a Publication Scheme and have adopted the standard Publication Scheme published by the Information Commissioner's Office.
The Scheme sets out the kind of information we routinely make available to the public as part of our normal business activities.
It points to information we are required by law to make public and has the intention of making information available, easy to find and use, without people having to contact the Council.
A large amount of information is already available on this website, but if you want more information contact us and if we can supply it, we will.

Local transparency - make an FOI request
If you would like information, which is not listed below, you can request this via a Freedom of Information (FOI) request.
Expenditure exceeding £500
Expenditure above £500 is published on a monthly basis, once data has been analysed and coded. Expenditure on Purchase Cards or Corporate Credit Cards is published for all values of spend on a monthly basis, once data has been analysed and coded. This information can be found in the Council's payments to suppliers page.
An up to date list is available of all current contracts either awarded by or participated in by Stockton-on Tees Borough Council which is published via the North East Procurement Organisation (NEPO) procurement portal.
The contract register includes details of all contracts, commissioned activity and framework agreements. This register is updated as new contracts are awarded and will therefore always include the latest information, rather than publishing a static register.
Invitations to Tender (ITTs) with contract values over £5,000 or the applicable Local Authority Tender threshold
All current ITTs are published via the North East Procurement Organisation (NEPO) via the Opportunities Portal.
In order to see Stockton opportunities please follow this process:
- click on "Search Latest Opportunities"
- select "Stockton Borough Council" from the Organisation dropdown box
- click Search tab (this will display all opportunities that are open to all suppliers, including Invitations to Tender)
This function is updated as new ITTS are published and will therefore always include the latest information, rather than publishing a static record of Tenders.
